Continuing the development of its MM725 sailing yacht concept, Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design shares a closer look into the interior of this advanced 72.5-metre sailing yacht design, revealing a luxurious and sophisticated design to match the yacht’s cutting exterior.MM725 sailing yacht conceptPhoto: AltSpace

First unveiled earlier this year, MM725 is a hyper-modern sloop designed for comfortable living and exhilarating cruising in complete luxury. With a strong connection to the surrounding elements through several fold-down balconies and life-sized superstructure glass sections, MM725’s interior further enhances this one-with-nature philosophy.MM725 sailing yacht conceptPhoto: AltSpace

Early on in the design phase, McKeon identified the importance of natural light inside the yacht and how this element will not only shape the mood on board, but the yacht’s structural foundation itself. MM725 sailing yacht conceptPhoto: AltSpace

He started by extending the sleek superstructure to cover the entire saloon with curved glass panels for an entertainment space unlike any other yacht of this size can offer. The interior is kept functional and sail-friendly, with oversized sofas flanking the formal dining area which seamlessly leads out onto the deck and inside the cockpit.

Here, the folding balconies on either side of the deck create a spacious feeling despite the relatively low deckheads for uninterrupted views over either side of the yacht when at anchor. A minimalist lounge setting carries the sophisticated ambience from the interior. MM725 sailing yacht conceptPhoto: AltSpace

With the 8.5-metre tender launched, the foredeck tender bay transforms into an illuminated swimming pool at night and, together with a sunken outdoor lounge area, creates the perfect on-deck oasis.MM725 sailing yacht conceptPhoto: AltSpace

With the helm stations located on the flybridge, the owner’s suite right at the stern is free from any crew activity from the deck above. With the transom door opened and bulwarks folded down, the master suite is only steps away from the ultimate beach club setup with an extra large swim platform leading down into an intimate lounge area that, just as the master suite, is lined with floor-to-ceiling windows on either side.

In terms of sail handling, the MM725 comes with an innovative self-storing reel designed to store downwind sails below deck in addition to a lifting keel and square-top mainsail - all to enhance the performance and safety on board. Malcolm McKeon 73m sloop MM725Photo: AltSpace Studio
